Reston Pets of the Week: Laverne and Shirley

Becky's Pet Care

This is sponsored post from Becky’s Pet Care.

This week’s Reston Pets of the Week are Laverne and Shirley, two kittens who are almost ready to go to a forever home, hopefully together.

Here is what the people at Fancy Cats Rescue have to say:

Laverne and Shirley were born on June 17, 2016. They will be ready to be adopted on Aug. 12, but we are accepting applications now.

They came into Fancy Cats care together, with just the two of them. They love each other very much and need to be adopted together.

We believe them to be Siamese mix kittens. Laverne is what we call Siamese on the inside. Even though she does not look Siamese, she sure acts like it.

She loves to be held and petted and carried around. She loves to eat. When she wants either, she comes to your feet, plops herself down on her hindquarters, throws her head back and MEEEEEOOOOOOOOWS!!!!

She meows so big that it seems her eyes disappear and her whole head is taken up by her open mouth. She keeps meowing until you give her what she wants. She does like to play, but she is not super high energy when compared to other kittens.

Shirley, however, LOVES to play. We call her the Siamese-on-the-outside kitten. She looks Siamese, complete with the beautiful ice blue eyes. She plays and plays and plays. When you pick her up and rub her just right, she will reward your efforts with a really big purr, but she doesn’t demand to be held and carried like Laverne. She does however prefer to sleep on you, rather than the boring old couch, so be prepared to be needed by some sweet little kitties.

Please note that it is Fancy Cats policy that kittens be adopted in pairs or have an age-appropriate playmate in the home already. We also do not adopt kittens to families with children under six years old without seeing appropriate history/experience with cats.

If interested in adopting, please fill out an adoption questionnaire.

Are you and these kitties a match? If so, let us know and our sponsor, Becky’s Pet Care, will send you $100 in Becky’s Bucks, as well as some treats.
